Aestral Private School
Multiple Intelligences Programme
All children have their own unique strengths and capabilities. Enabling a balanced learning environment helps children flourish in society, creating success for themselves, their family and society as a whole.
An educational setting catering to Multiple Intelligences (MI) has been shown to improve the performance of students in standardized tests across academic topics. Results from studies conducted at Harvard University have shown that 80% of schools which employed MI practices in their teaching saw better academic results, in addition to improved student discipline and parents engagement (Howard Gardner, Harvard Graduate School of Education). This programme caters to the traditional eight intelligences in combination with a class on Cultural Intelligence.
Through Aestral Private School’s experiential 8 + 1 Intelligences programme conducted over one week in Singapore, we allow children to explore their different intelligences and grow their intellectual capacities through techniques and locations that will build memories and skills for life. With a combination of classroom and outdoor activities, this MI programme includes sessions that are designed to develop young minds in the areas of:
